Comment 36 for bug 124315

The last weeks have seen a lot of discussion on the bug, and it seems the general consensus is that this behaviour isn't desired by most users and is, in fact, a major issue for most people. People have pointed out that this feature is very standard in most major operating systems and there seems to be a common desire for a quick and stable solution to this problem.

Apparently, the window manager isn't the only one at fault, but changes in the applications' handling of window positions/size are required as well. However, there seems to be room for improvement in the window manager -- which is only reasonable, since obviously these things work well with other window managers. Considering the importance and visibility of this issue, would it perhaps be possible to include this bug in the "one hundred paper cuts" project? -- provided this issue fits the scope of the project.
